GACK! *Chokes on food*

Man, I got to remember Rule #37 -- Never eat while browsing images on this website.   ;)

Excellent work guys!  :nod:

Oh yeah, I've heard of a Shivan weapon called the Baalor...
Any chance we could see some screens of that in action...?

The Baalor is only used by the Durja, and I think it only shows up in the final mission...

So that would make the Baalor a torpedo...?
Or some type of bomber-specific heavy cannon?

It's a cannon, the Shivan bombs are Osyluth, Hamatula, Amnizu and Tarrasque.

How powerful is it?
I.E.: What would happen if a fighter was hit by it?
Would it be like the instant kill of a Anti-Capital beam that happens every once and a while?  :mad:

Most of our weapons pack quite a punch, if it hits you you'll be knocked around a bit. It depends on what ship your flying though. A bomber like the Jotun doesn't get knocked by much.
Our fighterbeams don't penetrate shields and don't instantly kill you. Though light fighters may have trouble against the more powerful Shivan variants.

Maybe some Ancients stuff? ;)
If in your opinion there's no difference beetwen "Master Game" and "Game Master", I can only feel for you.

What is the purpose of this gate extension? Cheaper, less powerful alternative to Melia??

Well the Melia is at least 8x larger than the extension. I don't think the GTVA would build one of those at every node they want to have a look through.

So Ancients subspace technology is used in that way:

Melia- Sol node, in fututre some strategic outer rim nodes

Gate extension- outer rim nodes, some weak core wolds nodes (I can imagine some political bull**** of goverment about "We're proud to anounce that new highway... em I mean new stable node has been open to civilian traffic, now you can go from system X to system Y in one jump instead of two"  :D

Odin- beyond outer rim assault

Neptune- beyond outer rim recon/exploration.


I wonder what would Ancienst say during first contact.
Ancient ship crew: sir, we have an incoming jump signature, it looks like one of ours, but... 5000 years old :D


BTW Now it looks like Terrans have a monopoly for jump drives/ships/gates that allow to travel via unstable nodes.
(Listen you stupid fish looking creature,if you wanna fly through my gate you have to pay. VAsudans be damned  :D

Well you don't build the big expensive one when you don't know what's on the other side. Don't want a Melia being captured or destroyed by something as it would cost a lot more to rebuild it. The extension can be built faster for a fraction of the cost.

I haven't decided what ships would encounter the Ancients first, but I doubt an Odin would be one of them.

I did try a Vasudan knossos extension for the Cairo once, but it looked really stuipid.

Vasudan one will be posted tommorow. Our old Cairo extension is too small for the new Vasudan stuff so I had to make a new one.

Well we don't really have any Shivan docking facilities, but I'll see what I can out together using the Arachnas.
